Perry Barr / Birchfield / A34 North Corridor Draft Regeneration Framework
Shortcut to this page: www.birmingham.gov.uk/A34Ncorridor
This document sets out how the Perry Barr/Birchfield area and the A34 North Corridor could grow and develop over the next 15 years.
It has been long recognised that although Perry Barr/Birchfield is a vibrant centre, it is not maximising its full economic potential. The A34 (N) Corridor also suffers from a poor street environment and poor accessibility for pedestrians, which has a negative impact on the overall quality and perception of the area.
Early in 2011, we consulted you about the Area Action Plan (AAP) for Aston, Newtown and Lozells. The AAP sets out a strategy for the long term regeneration in parts of Aston, Newtown and Lozells. Located within the AAP boundary, the Perry Barr/ Birchfield Local Centre will play a vital part in the City’s growth through new investment and developments to benefit both the local area and wider community.
The Draft Regeneration Framework aims to help encourage investment and drive the long-term transformation of Perry Barr/Birchfield Local Centre and the A34 (N) Birchfield Road/Newtown Row Corridor areas specifically.
We asked for your comments on the Draft Framework in October/November 2011. We are now considering all the comments received to help us decide which proposals to take forward. We will then produce the final Framework document which will then be used to help shape the area. This is likely to be in January / February 2013.
A pdf version of the Draft Framework is below, along with a map of the area covered by the proposals.
